3 Pics!

I was playing around with my cross bookmark pattern, which I thought I could make into a star shape and this is the result - 5 pointed like a starfish - I quite like it. Next I am going to make a "straight" bookmark with the same josephine knot edging.

My next door neighbour is very kind to me, always lending me great books to read and so I thought I would surprise her with one of my cross bookmarks.

Here is a picture of my recent oval doily now in it's final resting place. I often put my tatted doilies under glass as it protects them and the glass protects the top of the wooden furniture. This occassional table is was bought in 1985 and there isn't a scratch on it!

Love the 'starfish' variation of your cross and your doily looks great on display.

All of your pieces are beautiful! I love the way you're displaying your doily. My grandmother always had glass on her table tops to protect them. It might not be a bad idea for me!

Your star and cross are very pretty. But, your doily is beautiful.
